Anju and Kafei

The Anju and Kafei Quest

You don't need to watch Sakon rob the old lady, but you can if you're bored.

This is the longest side quest in the game and contains tons of collectibles. It’s possible to have done it before the Stone Tower Temple but it’s just so long and out of the way that it’s best done after.

To complete this challenge you must have:

  • Epona's Song
  • Romani Mask
  • Garo Mask
  • Hookshot
  • Allowed Sakon to rob the Old Lady

Day 1

[Required] 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Head to the Mayor’s Residence and speak with Madame Aroma, she’s in the door to the right. She will hand you Kafei’s Mask and hires you to find him.

[Optional] 11:00 AM to 11:30 AM

In the Mayor’s Residence you can witness a conversation between Madame Aroma, Toto, and Gorman. Head into the back room and go behind the curtain to find Kafei’s diary. He’s excited about getting married to Anju and the masks they are making.

[Optional] 12:00 PM to 12:15 PM

Head to the Stock Pot Inn and go to the back room where her grandmother can be found. She hates Anju’s cooking and the diary notes this as well.

[Optional] 2:10 PM

Visit the front desk at Stock Pot Inn during this time to see the Postman deliver a letter to Anju from Kafei.

Be sure not to speak to Anju before the timeframe for receiving the Room Key!

[Optional] 1:50 PM to 3:50 PM

Put on the Goron Mask and talk to Anju at the Stock Pot Inn during this timeframe to receive the Room Key. This allows you access to the room upstairs, it has a chest with a Silver Rupee inside. You can also enter the Stock Pot Inn after hours via the front door.

[Optional] 4:10 PM

A Goron with the same name as your hero will come to get his reservation. If you’ve already grabbed the reservation and thus the Room Key, he will end up sleeping outside which doesn’t actually bother him.

[Required] 2:10 PM to 8:00 PM

This must be done after the Postman delivers the letter from Kafei. Put on Kafei’s Mask and speak with Anju at the Stock Pot Inn. She’ll ask to meet at the kitchen around 11:30 PM.

[Required] 12:00 AM to 6:00 AM

Meet with Anju in the kitchen of the Stock Pot Inn to get the Letter to Kafei . You must not give anything to the hand in the toilet or save the Old Lady from Sakon, doing either will cause this event to fail.

Day 2

[Required] 12:00 AM to 9:00 AM

Visit any mailbox in Clock Town and place the Letter to Kafei inside. There is one in East Clock Town for a quick drop off.

[Required] 3:10 PM to 3:50 PM

Head to the Laundry Pool around 3:00 PM and the Postman will ring the bell to deliver the letter. Sneak inside the house when Kafei comes out then wait for him.

[Required] 4:10 PM to 6:00 PM

Talk to Kafei to learn that Skull Kid turned him into a child and that Sakon the Thief stole his Sun Mask. He gives you the Pendant of Memories to give to Anju.

[Required] 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM

At some point before 7:00 PM on the Final Day you must give the Pendant of Memories to Anju. Doing this will convince Anju to wait for Kafei on the Final Day and not flee.

[Optional] 9:30 PM to 11:00 PM

If you have the Room Key and gave Anju the Pendant already, go to your room upstairs. You can listen through the wall to hear an argument between Anju and her mother.

[Optional] 12:30 AM to 1:00 AM

If you visit the Curiosity Shop at this time you’ll see Sakon the Thief pawning off the Big Bomb Bags. Kafei will see this and follow Sakon to his hideout.

Day 3

You can also give the letter to the Postman during the final night (see later).

[Required] 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Return to Kafei’s Hideout in the Laundry Pool to find the Curiosity Shop Owner. Talk to him to receive the Keaton Mask and the Special Delivery to Mama .

[Required] 6:00 PM

Head to Ikana Canyon and save your game in case you mess up here. Go up the ramp of the lower region to find Sakon’s Hideout. Hide here with Kafei until 7:00 PM when Sakon opens the door then follow Kafei inside.

You’ll be controlling both Link and Kafei, working as a team will get the Sun Mask back. You need to be fast or the Sun Mask will fall through the hole at the end. Follow these steps:

  • As Link, step on the Blue Switch.
  • As Kafei, push the block onto the Blue Switch.
  • As Link, defeat the Deku Baba.
  • As Kafei, avoid the Red Switches and step on Yellow Switches to navigate the conveyor belt. At the end, step on the Blue Switch.
  • As Link, defeat the two Deku Babas.
  • As Kafei, step onto the red block and push the other one so that is sits atop the yellow block. Push the adjacent block down onto the Blue Switch.
  • As Link, defeat the Wolfos.
  • As Kafei, pull the block out of the way and reach the door. Step on the Blue Switch.
  • As Link, step on the Blue Switch.
  • [Optional] After 6:00 PM

    Visit the Latte Milk Bar, you’ll need the Romani Mask to get in. Put on Kafei’s Mask and talk to Madame Aroma. Hand over the Special Delivery to receive Bottle #7 , the last bottle in the game.

    [Required] 4:30 AM

    With barely an hour left on the clock, head to the Stock Pot Inn and into the Employee’s Only room at the top of the steps. Here you’ll find Anju and Kafei, who combine their masks to form the Couple’s Mask . They hand this to Link and wait to die, but we can’t have that! Go outside and play the Song of Time.
